Sam and Ken -the romantic meeting in the sky that led to love

We just love the romantic meeting of our latest Lyn Ashworth couple, Ken from Florida, USA and Sam from the UK. Sam, explains: “We met on an internal US flight. Ken was traveling for work and I was traveling with a friend for a week prior to a work commitment in America.

“We dated transatlantic for about 18 months (luckily my work took me back to the US quite a bit so we were able to see each at least every 6 weeks). Ken asked me to marry him in an English rose garden in a botanical gardens in Orlando and he moved over to the UK in November 2015.”

Our wedding was at Thornton Manor in Cheshire on May 18th.

“I know it’s a cliché but the day was perfect, the weather behaved, the caterers, Barret’s, did a spectacular job of the food and running the day, the staff at Thornton Manor were great and the band ‘Friends of the Bride’ had everyone dancing until the end of the evening. The Photographer, Simon J Newman took hundreds of pictures inside and outside the beautiful Thornton Manor venue.  “

The dress

“I had looked at a range of dress shops prior to meeting Kerensa at Bijou Bridal. There were lots of beautiful dresses but none quite what I was looking for.

“When I tried on ‘Sweet Primrose’ from Lyn Ashworth by Sarah Barrett it was perfect and although I tried a few more on after, nothing compared.

“The service at Bijou Bridal and from Lyn Ashworth by Sarah Barrett was exceptional, when the dress arrived it fitted perfectly and the dress, looked and felt amazing. It was also really easy to wear, although it was full it was really light and moved with me effortlessly. I loved every minute that I got to wear my beautiful wedding dress and the experience of choosing the dress and the tailor made accessories was wonderful.”

“Thank you to everyone involved in making my beautiful dress, both Ken and myself thought it was perfect and as you can see from the pictures, I couldn’t stop twirling.”
